"test drive 3 creates strange tones when i use fsmp with "use patch info for capital tone fallback" enabled
i have to disable it and press reset ones even when it is disabled to make midi sound ok with test drive 3"
Have you read the command's output message? The command worked perfectly I do not speak German, but I do understand that 'deaktiviert' means disabled. So you, or some kind of 'tweaking software' disabled 8.3 filename creation on your D: volume. Note, the factory default of this setting on Windows is enabled. That's why 32 bit midiplayer cannot load unicode filenames on your system. You can enable/set default state on your D: volume by this command:
fsutil 8dot3name set D: 0
'Use patch info for capital tone fallback' do more harm than good if you do not set up SC-VA and Midiplayer correctly.
1. You should set SC-VA to SC-55 mode.
2. In Midiplayer-> Instruments->Custom Patch Definitions you should set Roland_SCVA.ins and set melodic to Roland SCVA 55 and drum to Roland SCVA 55 Drumsets.
3. Enable Use patch info for capital tone fallback
4. Also make sure Midiplayer's Reset type is set to 'GS'.
James-F has written about these settings:
enabled it with the command
but it still don't work with the 32 bit version
i dont use any tweaking software
may be its the pro version of windows
All Roland units including SC-VA will use last correct Drum program if the desired one is non existent.
Maybe it would be wise to include DISABLE option individually for Instruments and Drums.
hmm may be munt would be an alternative for mt32 emulation

So, circling back to this, the problem is that the SC-55 does allow for the selection of non-existent drum sets. Not only that, but, having done some thorough testing, I've discovered that the program change behavior for the drum sets is different between the 1.xx and 2.xx SC-55s.

Keep in mind that more options in FSMP is more reasons for new users to complain about FSMP making their corrupt midis sound bad, or not display a lyrics text.
